I am a male in my early 50's. I have eclectical musical tastes; from heavy metal to Ani Difranco, Greg Brown, Dan Bern and that indie/hippie/folk
sound. You can find almost any genre playing at any time at my place. Recently, I was on the road with a friend that I hadn't seen for a bit.
While driving she asked if she could put on a CD while caught up on what has been going on with our respective lives. We didn't have much of a
conversation, I must admit. The tape was by a New York "anti-folk" artist named Regina Spektor. The music was indescribable a cross betwen
jazz/folk/and something ethereal. Her vocal techniques are, well, often the very definition of eclecticism. I've been playing that tape over and
over (I made sure that my friend "forgot" her CD) and all can say is give her a listen. It may not be to your taste but you'll have to admit,
this woman can sing.
